Don't know what you mean by "channel model".

Kismet knows one thing: Where you are when you get a packet. There is no way to know where a packet came from, only where you are when you saw it. Signal strength in wifi is almost completely worthless & kismet doesn't use it for anything run-time. You can try to use it from the XML for off-line plotting.
